Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) compounds

Thermoplastic Polyurethanes are commercially available thermoplastic elastomers. Thermoplastic

Polyurethane is a family of block copolymers, consisting of alternating hard isocyanate sections and soft polyol sections. Its production method is the reaction of diisocyanate with polyester or polyols. TPU is a meltable polymer that can be used in processes such as extrusion, injection, air, and pressure molding.

The most important advantages of TPU compounds in comparison to other styrenic thermoplastic compounds are:

  • Excellent mechanical strength
  • High abrasion resistance
  • High tear resistance
  • High elongation at break
  • Excellent flexibility even at low temperatures
  • Good resistance to all kinds of oil, grease, oxygen, and ozone

The most important applications of the TPU compound are:

  • Shoe soles
  • Automotive Parts
  • Table and chair wheel covers
  • Fluid transfer pipes
  • Wire and cable coating
  • Traffic signs
  • Film and sheet
  • Electronic components
  • Sports equipment and household appliances
